Shri Naqvi said a large section of minority community is engaged in traditional arts/crafts for several generations. The scheme has been launched to preserve rich heritage of traditional arts/crafts of minorities and build capacity of traditional artisans/craftsmen.
The scheme will also establish linkages of traditional arts/crafts with the national and international market and ensure dignity of labour. The scheme, which will be funded by the Central Government, will prepare skilled and unskilled artisans and craftsmen to compete with big companies, Shri Naqvi said.
Shri Naqvi expressed confidence that the scheme will provide employment opportunities and a better future to the youths belonging to the minority community.
The ‘’USTTAD’’ scheme is for all areas of the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Arunachal Pradesh to Gujarat. He appeal to those engaged in traditional arts/crafts to utilize this scheme.
